That's Fehr's job, to some extent, but it's also posturing.

On the other hand, I'm not sure why you're so willing to give the NHL the benefit of the doubt in terms of their sincerity here. Regardless of their proclaimed willingness to negotiate, their opening offer couldn't have been intended as a serious starting point. Taking a hard opening line is perfectly understandable, but the offer should be reasonable enough to encourage discussion. The owners seemed more eager to poison the well than spark productive exchange.
